The Good The Samsung UNF6400 LED LCD TV sports an excellent mix of features and looks great sitting on your AV unit. Accurate color in bright scenes; solid video processing; sound quality is way above average; touch-pad remote is responsive and the comprehensive smart TV works well; includes 3 pair of active 3D glasses.
The Bad Mediocre overall picture quality with relatively light black levels, desaturated low-level colors and some some uniformity and off-axis issues; flimsy stand.
The Bottom Line The Samsung UNF6400 offers attractive styling and a full complement of features for the price but is outstripped by rivals for performance.

The Samsung F6400 is a pretty good TV, it has a lot of features and the styling is lovely, but there's something lacking. It turns out that that something is above-average picture quality.
While the UNF6400 is not a bad TV by any stretch, it doesn't perform as well as many sets at the same or lower price level. Among models we've tested, for example, the Panasonic E60 and ST60 and the all offer better picture quality. Unless you really like the UNF6400's feature set, nameplate, or styling, there's little reason to choose it over the alternatives.
